  1. A Research Guide to the Marcellus and Utica Shales A Presentation to the Conference, Best Practices in Marcellus Shale Education, Cornell University, Museum of the Earth in Ithaca, NY March 18 -19, 2013 E.J.Knittel Senior Director, Education and Sustainability Pennsylvania State Association of Boroughs

  2. Acknowledgements • This project was led by Robert P. Strauss, Professor of Economics and Public Policy, and Aferworki Paulos, Adjunct Professor of Social and Decision Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University. • Collin Siu and Anna Kasunic, Heinz College, Carnegie Mellon University. • This project was generously supported by a grant from the Pennsylvania State Association of Boroughs, the Chrostwaite Institute, and the Pennsylvania Borough Councilmembers’ Association. • We thank Jeffrey Heishman his comments and suggestions during the development of this electronic bibliography.

  3. Overview • Research Question • Methodology • Source Origins • Count of Sources by Category • Website Demonstration • Contact Information • Appendix 1: Our Review of the Literature • Appendix 2: Local Government Projects at CMU

  4. I. Research Question posed to us by Ed Knittel • How much and what research literature exists on the impacts of natural gas extraction by hydraulic fracturing on gas extraction communities? Specifically dealing with the following issues: • Crime • Housing • Population and planning issues • Poverty • Roads and transportation • Tourism

  5. II. Methodology: This bibliography is the result of a systematic search of the literature • Identified (9) relevant bibliographic databases • Created structured search queries for each database • Captured and classified all relevant results in a spreadsheet • Recorded bibliographic information about source • Developed a keyword, searchable project website to facilitate access to this electronic bibliography thatcurrently contains 1234 records (March 2013) : • http://www.andrew.cmu.edu/org/marcellus-biblio/

  6. III.Source Origins: National Shale Plays and Number of Research Studies by City

  7. III. Source Origins: Pennsylvania

  8. IV. Our review of the literature turned up few references in areas of local concern* Most of the literature discusses: • Economy (jobs, economic impact) (213) • Public health and environment (human health, pollution) (588) • Engineering techniques (109) There is little discussion of: • Crime (2) • Housing (8) • Population and planning issues (2) • Poverty (2) • Roads and transportation (3) • Tourism (3) • *Appendix 1 contains links to references in these categories
